Some local government. DeSantis taking reactionary position refusing state-wide stay at home order.

Another preacher who parroted Fox “mass hysteria” and “anti-Trump” virus misinformation died in Virginia.

Fox News reportedly bracing for lawsuit citing knowingly reckless reporting endangering human life.

I mean the native American's do kind of have some experience with people bringing diseases from other parts of the world into their land.

And nothing wrong with a Bradley on spring break! I mean I never did anything stupid on spring break (that is a fact, normally we took a big ski trip at winter break since we got a month off, I still can't believe we got the damage deposit back on on condo in '93).

How's that DEMOCRAT who ran against DeSantis (Andrew Gillam) doing..... is he out of rehab yet? I don't think so. Have they buried his ODed wedding party friend? Who will challenge DeSantis next time from the Florida Crack Head Party?

What guidance can we expect from Shiff for brains? He's the head of the House "Intelligence" Committee. How bout the fat turd Nadler wanting to run and hide from Washington and having to be slapped down like a sniveling coward by a great grandmother (Nancy). So Classic.

Do you think Intelligence briefings are only given to the Executive branch?

Since you're the Chairman of Hindsight can you Please post up the week by week changing positions of Gov Cuomo and Bill DeBlasio concerning the seriousness of the virus?

Has my "Political" rebuttal changed anything? Are you any safer? That's how I feel about your continued useless Political hyperbole.... I can visit the comment section of CNN, The Hill or Breitbart if I want to read pointless political hate.

Concurred with what I'd been thinking.
Fwiw I considered Crossfires at one time then heard two different stories of guys that might have had a simpler break with a less protective boot but ended up with a spiral fracture and a rod in their leg.

I'm sure there's plenty of people that had the opposite problem, we play the game and take our chances.

I've been wanting to buy some new boots and screwed up at the MC show by not trying some on there. Not sure how you are supposed to buy boots online, but none of the local stores are open. Need to find something 3/4 height, tall boots just don't fit my skinny ankles/shins and relatively big calves.

Rocky Mountain ATV offered free shipping and free returns last time I paid attention to their boot policy.

Anybody who has posted something today and had to use "quotations" to vent their anger, should probably self delete and shelter their point of view until it is less infectious.

What I found even more extraordinary was the requirement imposed by Florida that people coming from New York had to be quarantined for 14 days. Meanwhile, drunk college kids from all over the country on crowded beaches, exchanging all manner of bodily fluids in every way imaginable, were free to come and go as they pleased!!!

Massive failure of logic and policy making. In a state with a HUGE elderly population, no less.

This stuff is not necessarily political. For instance, both Virginia and Maryland were pretty late in imposing Stay Home orders. Maryland has a Republican governor (Larry Hogan), and Virginia has a Democrat (Ralph Northam).

The CDC says possibly 25% of infected people could be asymptomatic, so if that is the case and we can't test everybody masks could help. But again by stopping the infected from spreading it, not necessarily protecting the uninfected.

My mom and sister live in a rural county in MN, it has had an abnormal amount of cases for a place with low population that is relatively isolated.
https://www.startribune.com/2-reside...d-19/569239942

One of the reason they give for having more confirmed cases is the hospital there is part of the Mayo Health system, they can do their own tests so more people are getting tested.

West Virginia has retracted a reported death. However it is not clear if they meant the first reported death or a second one. But when I went to the WV site they list lots of counties with 1 to 3 reported cases and only the county containing Morgantown has a large number of cases. This would lead me to believe this is incredibly easy to spread.
However it may just be a case of getting spread at WVU or something.

Figured I might as well make something creative out of all this mess while I'm stuck at home sheltering in place... (Best with headphones, IMO)

And the accident happened when I was supposed to be social distancing but resulted in a trip to urgent care.

I did realize after posting I probably should have put my good news elsewhere. Oh well.

I did read similar stories of a couple instances on advrider. Not really sure what to do. I guess I am thinking the Balances still don't offer sufficient ankle support. Could be this is like a "I would have been able to move from the side impact if not for the seatbelt" scenario? Meaning mx boots are better in all but rare instances?

What did you go with, to avoid a visit to the ER and contact with corona people?

I've seen some articles that China lost 21 million cell phone users in the last 3 months maybe giving a truer death toll. Unfortunately I'm not sure how accurate any of these reports are though.
